What Is Asbestos and Why Is It Dangerous?

Asbestos is term for six naturally occurring minerals containing long, thin crystals or fibers. Asbestos is an excellent electrical insulator and fireproofing agent, and as such was used in building materials such as insulation for electrical wiring, pipes, and roofing tiles for over 100 years. However, those same fibers can break down and remain in the air for a long time, becoming carcinogens if breathed in by humans or animals. As a result, Canada banned asbestos at the end of 2018 after it was linked to cancerous tumour growths, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.

Why Do I Need Asbestos Removal Services in Medicine Hat?

Asbestos was used in thousands of building materials for centuries, and as a result, most homes built in Medicine Hat during the 20th century contain asbestos.
